What would St. Patrick’s Day be without some humorous limericks?
Press the ▶️ Play Button to begin!
A man with a four-leaf clover,
Bought a blarney stone in Dover.
He got quite a shock,
The stone was a rock!
There was no luck in his clover.
There once was a fellow named Ben,
Who thought he could play violin.
But his playing was bad,
The neighbors got mad,
And they sent poor Ben to the pen.
There once was a flautist named Knute,
Who grew tired of playing the flute.
His flute he did hock,
And bought some shamrocks,
Then sold them and made lots of loot.
Last year on St. Patrick’s Day,
A leprechaun sat down to play.
But the songs he knew,
Were all sad and blue.
He ruined the whole holiday.
What would St. Patrick’s Day be without limericks? These silly five-line poems originated in Ireland in the 18th century. They were popularized by Edward Lear in the 19th century. Over time, limericks became associated with St. Patrick’s Day, probably because they’re so much fun, just like St. Patrick’s Day itself.
